The "Gul Djemal"
Argued January 4, 1924
Decided February 18, 1942
264 U.S. 90
The objection that a vessel owned, possessed, manned, and operated by a foreign state but engaged in ordinary commerce under charter to a private trader is immune to libel in the district court for services and supplies cannot be raised by her master, who, although a naval officer, is not functioning as such, and is not shown to have authority to represent his sovereign in making the objection. P. 264 U. S. 94.
296 F.5d 7 affirmed.
Appeal from a decree of the district court sustaining a libel against a ship, for services and supplies.
